The Persona line of skin care products is designed to exhibit both anti-aging and general skin health properties. Persona is a set of five separate products, each with it’s own skin care function. While these products can be used individually to treat trouble spots, Persona recommends that you use all of them to obtain a cumulative effect. Unfortunately, some users find that this is an expensive and confusing regimen, especially compared to other products with fewer steps. In addition to their intensive skin care process, Persona also offers an acne treatment, and their website will be happy to direct you to Persona-contracted LASIK technicians in your area if you are worried about your eyesight. This catch-all approach can be troubling as it is unlikely that Persona has devoted all of their resources exclusively to skin care.
The Persona acne care package prides itself on its gentle, organic formulas. The full Persona skin care package includes an under eye cream, a general facial lotion, a toner, a nighttime cream and a cleanser. Also, since Persona is a non-prescription treatment, all of their multi-product skin care packages come with extensive directions. While the Persona company website lists sunglasses and nutritional supplements for sale, they have no actual products under these links, again indicating a scattered company directive. Persona’s website does allow you to order all skin care products directly and offers many purchasing incentives like product discounts and a customer rewards program.
Most Persona products contain some variation on basic natural skin care ingredients, including vitamin A, vitamin C and vitamin E. However, there are no conclusive studies that show these vitamins to be beneficial when incorporated into a topical cream. Other natural elements featured in Persona products are the cure-all Echinacea extract oil and the mineral rich anise extract.
In addition to these natural ingredients, Persona products also include the company’s own highly active ingredients such as Vitanol, Coenzyme and Polylift. These proprietary formulations are blends of several ingredients that are ultimately purported to enhance the products effectives.
Persona products are also known to include the artificial ingredients Propylparaben and methylparaben. Both of these parabens are common and low-cost preservatives that have been linked to negative health studies, including cancer and stomach pains.
- A highly user-friendly website that offers the full product range on-line.
- Several ready-made skin care regimen packages containing three or more products are available already put together for you.
- Money back guarantee.
- Orders over $75.00 get free shipping.
- Not all products are formulated from entirely natural ingredients. Ingredients from some products may have a negative impact on health.
- Some featured active ingredients, such as vitamin A, and vitamin E, have few studies backing up their effects as topical remedies. Current wisdom holds that these are much more effective when ingested.
- High number of products necessary to obtain “optimal results.”
- Company sells everything from sunglasses to LASIK, implying that they do not specialize exclusively in skin care treatments.
The Bottom Line
Persona appears to be a very general line of skin health care products. While it does contain many natural vitamins, it contains few breakthrough proprietary ingredients that will act as anything more than broad supplements. Both ingredients to specifically targeted to stimulate the production of collagen or other skin restoring peptides are both missing. However, it is definitely one of the more affordable skin care products available.
